Sandy Alderson acquired another treasure from the Pirates

When Sandy Alderson became the General Manager of the Mets, he had the tough task of rebuilding the farm system, letting players develop, and try to make the Mets competitive as soon as possible.

Sandy Alderson Dials Up Winning Code in Offseason (643) (463)

The lead had dwindled to one. Closer Jeurys Familia yielded a leadoff single to the pesky Denard Span and was staring at the stern, focused face of former Met Angel Pagan.
